Skin Cancer Foundation
The Skin Cancer Foundation is the only global organization solely devoted to the prevention, early detection and treatment of skin cancer. The organization works to generate public awareness and educate people about the importance of skin cancer prevention and early detection. Miiskin is proud to be supporting The Skin Cancer Foundation.
‘Skin Cancer is the world’s most common cancer, but 99 percent of all cases are curable if they are diagnosed and treated early enough. That’s why The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends adults perform monthly self-exams, in addition to visiting a dermatologist once a year, or more often if you are at a higher risk of skin cancer, for a full-body, professional skin exam.
Mobile apps like Miiskin can be a helpful tool for performing self-exams, and can help you monitor anything new, changing or unusual on your skin that would require professional attention. The Skin Cancer Foundation appreciates Miiskin’s efforts to make skin cancer early detection a more intuitive process. Together, we can save and improve more lives.’– The Skin Cancer Foundation.
Danish Cancer Society
The Danish Cancer Society (cancer.dk) is the leading Danish cancer organisation with a core focus on research, prevention and patient support. Miiskin is proud to collaborate with the Danish Cancer Society and financially support the ‘Tjek Mærkerne’ campaign, that raises awareness about skin cancer and the early detection of melanoma.
Project Manager, Peter Dalum, from the Danish Cancer Society recommends taking close-up photos of moles e.g. with an app and to regularly check your skin for any changes.
Cancer Association of South Africa
Miiskin and the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) are working together to create awareness in the South African population about checking you skin and moles for changes. Miiskin further supports CANSA with a portion of our premium subscriptions to help fund CANSA’s fight against cancer in South Africa.
British Skin Foundation
The British Skin Foundation is the UK’s only charity dedicated to funding research into all skin diseases, including skin cancer. Miiskin is proud to support the work of the British Skin Foundation by fundraising for the charity and helping to raise awareness of the importance of keeping an eye on your skin to spot any changes.
Canadian Skin Cancer Foundation
Miiskin supports the Canadian Skin Cancer Foundation to help the foundation in its work of preventing and eradicating skin cancer through education, awareness, advocacy and research. The Canadian Skin Cancer Foundation recommends self examinations at least monthly, using the ABCDEs of early detection to help determine if a doctor should be consulted.
The Skin Health Alliance
The Skin Health Alliance awards professional dermatological accreditation to products and services around the world. This helps consumers feel confident in their choices by reassuring them that products and services have been independently verified as skin safe. Miiskin is the first app to receive a dermatological accreditation from the trusted organisation.
Hudkræft.com ( skincancer.dk ) is a non-profit skin cancer awareness website started thanks to cooperation between dermatologists and patients in Denmark. The website has been translated by dermatologists to 13 languages.
